Should age group be added to reviews.

In looking over reviews it is stated if a person traveled solo, with friends, as a family with young kids,  as a family with older kids,  what room type they had and # of cruises taken.

I think it could be helpful to add "Age group".  I know that what a 20 something finds to be the "Perfect Cruise" is very different then what a 80 something finds to be the "Perfect Cruise"  If the reviews have age group, when we read the review we can get a better perspective on the reviewers point of view.  

I know 50 year somethings with small kids, I also know traveling with friends can be anything from a spring break college age group to the Red Hat Ladies,  so I think adding age would be useful.  Your thoughts ????

Not a bad idea. We should also get some of those emocon thingys to show who is party animal or bridge club patron..... like the song said---I like to rock n' roll All Night!!!!!

Don't see why not.

That sounds like a good idea. It could be optional. I think it would be worthwhile.

Sure what the hell.

We've thought about adding age group / range, but it could get complicated. What about multi-generational family groups or other large parties that span multiple age groups? We think it would add more confusion than it would help.

It was a thought to add more clarity to a review to know the point of view of the person reviewing the cruise.

It would be a nice enhancement, yes.

Since the cruise lines market to general age groups, I think the reviews should take that into account. I seriously doubt that a 16 year old would find the grace of the Queen Mary as exciting as a Carnival ship. On the other hand, Carnival may be more than a refined, European, elderly gentleman would care for.
